I usually go for Chinese at least once a week and thought I'd start posting my fortunes here. With the "in bed" tacked on the end. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> For those of you that don't know you're supposed to add "in bed" to the end of your fortune.<br><br><br><br>
From last week: You will be fortunate in everything you put your hands to <i>in bed.</i>

I got suckered into taking two of the EarthSave people to a Japanese hibatchi place for what was supposed to be partly a business meeting. (Very little business was discussed, and it was not conducive to it.) They had exactly one vegetarian choice. Having seen for the first time how fried rice is prepared, it will be a long time before I ever order it again.<br><br><br><br>
But one thing that surprised me is that they had fortune cookies for dessert. I had never seen fortune cookies in a Japanese restaurant before. One of the ladies claimed never to have heard of the "in bed" add-on joke, and was amused by it.

I <b>love</b> white rice with steamed tofu. I'm totally addicted to it. Does anyone know what's in the brown sauce? I usually get it without and if I do get it I get it without oil.<br><br><br><br>
That's odd about the fortune cookie. The lady at one of the Chinese restaurants I go to told me a lot of Chinese people are opening Japanese restaurants so that could be why. Do you know if they were Japanese?<br><br><br><br>
Reminds me of the time my mom and I went to the Mexican restaurant and she asked them how they say "Happy Thanksgiving" in Mexican. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

ok, here are the best ones i have on me...<br><br><br><br>
you will have a fine capacity for the enjoyment of life in bed.<br><br><br><br>
you long to see the great pyramid of egypt in bed (covered by a sheet, i am assuming)<br><br><br><br>
you will attain high levels of intelligence in bed. (oh, that's already taken care of)<br><br><br><br>
you will travel far and wide in bed. (uh..that one may not be so good)<br><br><br><br>
be consistent, realistic, and confident to reach goals in your life in bed.<br><br><br><br>
depend on your feet , you can climb the highest mountain (heh heh - that was the first one i got at that resturaunt).<br><br><br><br>
live for today, remember yesterday and plan for tomorow in bed.<br><br><br><br>
perseverence is not a long race; it is many short races one after another in bed (nice)<br><br><br><br>
you should be of more tenderness and less aggressiveness in bed (so i am told. just kidding).<br><br><br><br>
you never hesitate to tackle the most difficult problems in bed (hey, i try).<br><br><br><br>
rest is a good thing, but boredom is it's brother in bed (no kiddin')<br><br><br><br>
nothing in the world is accomplished without passion in bed (duh!)<br><br><br><br>
you will have a long and healthy life in bed (good to know)<br><br><br><br>
you are often unaware of the effect you have on others in bed (like i said, i try).<br><br><br><br>
if your desires are not extravagant, they will be granted in bed (i havent been dissapointed yet).<br><br><br><br>
so there!

I laughed till I almost cried reading your fortunes! It reminded me of that nutty forward I got a couple of times that took lines from Star Wars movies and added "underpants" in the most crazy places.

Alas, those fortunes are nowhere near as funny if you put "in/at VB" on the end instead of "in bed". I was hoping for more laughs, but now I am just laughing at my absurdity.

Perseverence is not a long race; it is many short races one after another at VB. Would these short races be the 'posting wars' we have now and again? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> LOL

You will attain high levels of intelligence at VB... yes, thanks to soilman, thalia, michael, kreeli, and the host of the rest of us whose names I am too lazy to all type out.

"Keep your plans secret for now-- at VB."<br><br><br><br>
Well... I spose it's true that sometimes y'all hear about my plans before my friends and family do.

This is the second time in a row I haven't gotten a fortune cookie. I don't think the lady there likes me because I order something that's not on the menu. I ordered rice and tofu, no sauce. She said "just tofu, no sauce" and I said "yes." So then I said "steamed tofu" and she snaps back "I know."

I order the same thing at the two chinese restaurants I go to. They recognize me and are really nice. Maybe they want a tip for takeout? I never know what to do about that.

*shrugs* If you want to give them a tip, handing it to them usually works.
